Big Zero by Lily Bell


Big Zero

Bitter

Frightened little girl

Incested

Body through soul

Repressed

By sanctioned patriarchy

Imposed

Unwelcome maternity

Breeding

For christianity

Bleeding

Internal wounds buried

Resentful

Mother of my being

Venemous

Verbal toxins stinging

Unfit

Tainted matriarch

Branded

Impure birthmark
